Following the conclusion of the Overman Comittee, there seemed to be a push for new sedition law, such as the Grahm-Sterling bill. Although the bill appears to not have passed, why didn't it pass? Was there any consequences to the Overman Committee hearings, such as an increase in deportations?

Also, what is the relationship between the Overman Committee and the German-Bolshevik conspiracy propagated by the Committee of Public Information?

Both Stevenson and Palmer seem to be related to the Lusk Committee, how so?
